    Mr Rossi,
    Will the 1 MW plants cost less that 1.5 million $, as they were offered for until now?

    Dear Andrea,

    Is the design of the first industrial E-Cat now settled (speaking of the technical specifications, not aesthetics)?

    Best wishes,

    We have resolved in toto the issue of the overheating.
    We did not present it at the IVA because it was not yet resolved.
    Thank you for your insight and for your attention to our work,

    Dear Andrea,

    In the demonstration of last November the “weak” point was the cooling system inside the power regulator for the reactor.

    I said “weak” meaning that most of the energy consumed by the power supply/regulator went for cooling. To my eyes, it is like to have a super-technological electric car with all the best instrumentation and driving assistance inside but powered by batteries large as a truck. it is like an electric Ferrari pluged to a truck on the back.
    I am following with enthusiasm your work and I really hope you reach all the targets you aim to. I need to ask a few questions:

    1) is there any better control system (less volume, less need for cooling)?
    2) if a better control system is available, why you did not show it at the presentation?

    3) if the control is difficult and no better controller is available, why the power of the reactor was limited at its 30% or so? In other words, why you did not show the full power of the reactor, then making the measurements of COP simpler. In fact, if the reactor would have been pushed at its 100%, the output power would have been much higher than the input power EVEN considering the enery wasted for cooling. In this case, also the measurements of the input could have been simpler. In asking this, I assume that the output power of the reactor is by far much higher as compared to the power adsorbed by the cooling system, that it could have been neglectable as respect to the power output of the reactor

    5) Following my considerations on the cooling system, it seems to me (I hope to be wrong) that QX, as presented, is not really ready for the industrialization. Therefore, as I assume you have a cleaver plan, I expect you did not show (on purpose) the best of the QX. Then my question: why not showing QX at its best (avoiding any scoop of course)?
    6) As the cooling is not needed for cooling the heat coming from the reactor, I assume the cooling is needed to cool some electronic components going to fry when high frequency pulses are given to the reactor. Could you prepare a different power supply with more passive dissipation of the heat? It seems to me that inside the power supply there must be some overheating similar to the processor working at high frequencies in the domestic personal computers. So, most of the times a fan is applied on the top of the processor for dissipation. However, for silent computers, there are passive dissipators. I do not think the frequencies I saw in the oscilloscope for the reactor were so high in frequency as compared to those inside a PC (a PCs goes easily to 1, 2 o 4 GHz), so I assume the passive cooling should work very well as the frequencies in the oscilloscope were not in the order of GHz for sure. I would appreciate some comments on the frequencies and the related heating showed on the oscilloscope at the demo.
    Thank you very much,
    Cari saluti,

    Stefano

    Frank Acland:
    1- the software is custom, the robots are off the shelf
    2- yes
    3- yes
    4- under strong pressure, because I am very nervous to succeed to sell the industrial plants within 2018. We re all under strong pressure, because every day that passes is a day less at our disposal. Time is not reversible, unfortunately. This is a race against time and relax is not an option

    Dear Andrea,

    1. If you have defined exactly what the robots will have to do, are there robots already available that can do the job, or do custom robots need to be made?

    2. Has your workforce increased in number since the beginning of 2018?

    3. Has your prototype been performing in a satisfactory way?

    4. How would you describe the mood of your team these days?

    Kind regards,

    Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    I want to apologize for the previous misleading question in response to an earlier question about the “material the reactor that contains the plasma” (not the plasma itself), which may have confused a few readers. I was thinking about the pill size fuel, once used in the past, that released the hydrogen within the catalyst. I guess a sign of ageing. 😊
    This helps me appreciate some of what you are having to deal with especially in this crucial time of industrialization. Your patience is exemplary that must come from another source: “Pro Christo Omnia in Deo” (your quote from ‘An Impossible Invention’ by Mats Lewan). Thank you!
    With much respect,
    Brokeeper

  • Yrka

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi.

    You have stopped responding to all technical and commercial issues.
    I understand it.

    You have a business plan, share what is planned in the coming months and until the end of the year (in the context of the calendar plan).
    Give some time frames, not dates but months.

    1. When do you plan to start assembling the robots on the assembly line?
    2. When do you plan to manufacture the first unit?

    I think that’s what’s worried about all your supporters now.

    Sorry, may questions distract you from work, but for years we’ve got used to reading your answers, they then get into blogs and forums. They are read by thousands of interested people.

    Thank you, good luck and health.

    @Nils Fryklund,
    I think you live in another planet. The Stockholm IVA event is viral in the internet. Perhaps you mean that the critics are very difficult because of the high level of the measurements made and the top level of the attendance.
    I suggest you to take a look at least to the 6 minutes summary: find it on http://www.ecat.com
    All the best,
    Tyson

    Dear Andrea!
    What happened with the audience at your Stockholm-demo?
    It is completely silent. Are they still skeptical or asleep?

    Dear Mr Rossi,

    Do the wires taking power into the plasma electrodes also have to be made of a similar high temperature alloy? Did you need to invent one for those as well? Thanks.

  • Steve swatman

    Dear dr Rossi,

    Are the robots that you plan to use a standard ABB model?

    Do they require anything other than programming to manage the job in hand?

    Which Robot model/s seems most suited to your requirements?

    I cannot see that any of these answers should be confidential as they give nothing away at all.

  • Petr

    Mr Rossi,
    When you will start the sales of the industrial plants will you inform us also on this blog?

    Dear Andrea,

    It is fascinating that you have invented a new alloy as the QX plasma catalyst. Was this alloy essential for the need to resist the melting point of the high temperatures required for full operation or melt into a plasma state when a required temperature is met. Could you explain further if neither? Will you patent the alloy if within patent criteria or would that be too risky with patent rogue nations? Thank you.
    With much respect,
    Brokeeper

  • Gennady

    Dear Andrea,

    As you open first automated factory to produce 1 MW eCat QX.

    1. How many units are you anticipating to produce per day, week, month, year?
    2. Also, since the units are going to be much smaller than original container size, what is the pricing that you anticipate per unit?
    3. What would be the cost of recharging a unit on the annual bases?
    4. Do you also have a forecast of the total cost of operating a unit per year (human operator, maintenance, input energy, etc)?

    Regards,

    Gennady

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rosii.

    On this photo the streets of Manhattan in 1900 and 1913.
    https://photos.app.goo.gl/7RaRZjOMSlr5xeRp1
    I am sure that the E-Kat cause as much explosive development of engineering and technology.
    Do you think we are already in the “1900” year?

    And another question (I think this should not be a secret, because in the previous experiments you have repeatedly called), the number (weight) of the “fuel” loaded in the Quark QX.
    And the second question (the actual variation of the first), what is the specific energy intensity of the “fuel”?
    (E = TC2 I know He, he, he …)

    Thank you.

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I must tell you I am very sceptic about the possibility to put in commerce an industrializad product within this year, but if you succeed we can talk of a miracle.
